Renaissance Theme

"Where Fantasy Rules" 

Renaissance Garb (clothing)

 

The bride and groom, bridesmaids and groomsmen, and both the parents’ of the bride and groom will be dressing from the renaissance period. We welcome all the guests to also join in the festivities by dressing in this fashion. Although renaissance garb is NOT required, it is strongly encouraged.

  

Renaissance garb is not only easy to find, fairly inexpensive. Furthermore, GUYS YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WEAR TIGHTS (unless you want to of course.)

 
 

Ladies

 

Ladies you can be as elaborate or as simple as you like. A simple peasant shirt and shirt would be lovely. Some other possibilities are: Princess, Maid Marion, Peasant, Fairy, Wood Elf, Gypsy

 

Lords

 

Lords you can also be as elaborate or as simple as you like. A simple poet shirt and black dress pants would be great. If you want to get fancy you can add a musketeer hat. Some of the possibilities: are: Knight, Musketeer, Peasant, King, Robin Hood, Friar Tuck.
